The Winston Churchill Trust Fellowships were established when Sir Winston Churchill died in 1965. Thousands of people, out of respect for the man and in gratitude for his inspired leadership, gave generously so that a living memorial to him could benefit future generations of British people. As Sir Winston’s national memorial, the trust carries forward his legacy by funding UK citizens from all backgrounds to travel overseas in pursuit of new and better ways of tackling a wide range of the current challenges facing the UK. Successful applicants are known as Churchill Fellows for life.
This year a fellowship has been awarded to Jack Sardeson, who will be conducting research in Japan on how the architecture of cities can suitably and sustainably meet the needs of a dementia prevalent population. This study will contribute to the publication of a report, written in collaboration with the British Council, outlining adaptations and alterations to current UK policy and development in the care sector.
